INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup Shea Butter

1/2 cup Navitas Organics Cacao Butter

1/2 cup Coconut Oil

1/2 cup Almond Oil

1 Vanilla Bean, scraped

40 drops Lemon Essential Oil

DIRECTIONS

Melt the shea butter, Cacao Butter, coconut oil and almond oil in a double boiler, and whisk until fully incorporated.
Remove the mixture from the heat and let it cool (or set it in the fridge for about 30 minutes, allowing it to thicken, but not fully solidify).
Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean and add them to the oils/butters, along with the lemon essential oil. Stir well to combine and set the bowl in the fridge for about 1 ½ hours to let it thicken up to a nearly solid state.
Use a hand mixer to whip the body butter (it will increase slightly in volume when you do this).
Transfer to two one-cup glass jars or glass containers with equivalent total volume.
Makes 2 cups
